“Dyche had offered £3million for the Republic of Ireland midfielder which was considered derisory by Derby who want more than £10million for the Irishman,” states the report in The Mirror.
“Burnley are now believed to have offered £7million for the midfielder but that's still well short of Derby's valuation with Sunderland also watching developments closely.”

Hendrick has been on the books of Derby his entire career so far and is regarded as one of the best midfielders in the Championship.
The 24-year-old scored two goals and created 28 chances in 32 Championship appearances for the Rams last season.
In four appearances for the Republic of Ireland at the 2016 European Championship in France this summer, Hendrick created three chances, had a pass accuracy of 77% and a shot accuracy of 50%, and won eight headers, two dribbles and two tackles, according to Squawka.com.
Hendrick featured in Derby’s Championship game against Brighton & Hove Albion at the iPro Stadium on Saturday afternoon, which ended in a goalless draw (see his stats below).
